I just love living on the edge of the Peak District! All of these photos were taken within a 10 minute drive of my house (plus a 30 minute walk!) I headed up into the hills above Holmfirth once again – frost on the ground and moonlight overhead – to witness the sun rise on another day in this beautiful part of the world. The landscape just begged to be photographed! I started with a wander down the Wessenden Valley, heading towards Marsden but the distant sound of flowing water persuaded me to head across the bank of Wessenden Head Reservoir (following the sheep!) towards a little waterfall. Unfortunately, after finding the waterfall, the path turned out to be a dead end (I’d hoped it would link up with the Pennine Way footpath and lead me on a bit of a circular walk) so I headed back up the hill towards my car. I didn’t drive far before I had to pull over though – the cloud rolling up the valley from Digley towards Bradshaw and Marsden Clough was stunning so I jumped out and rattled off a couple of shots before heading home for a nice cuppa!
